The Salvation Army is working with Walmart to collect school supplies for Gloucester and Mathews children in need during the annual “Stuff the Bus” event the weekend of Friday, Aug. 6 to Sunday, Aug. 8 at Gloucester Walmart.
“Stuff the Bus” school supply drives will take place at more than 4,500 Walmart stores across the country. Shoppers can purchase and drop off items at collection bins at the front of each store or search their local Salvation Army’s online Registry for Good to donate supplies online with just a few quick clicks.
“There are children heading back to school in Gloucester and Mathews this year, and a large percent of their families struggling to make ends meet,” said Nicole Watson, Case Manager of Gloucester’s Salvation Army. “By donating school supplies for a child in need, you can empower families to start the school year well and achieve success in the future. It’s the boost of confidence they need when getting back to normal after a challenging year.”
